Real Madrid are supposedly chasing down Chelsea’s ace forward Eden Hazard.
The Belgian international is reportedly on the cusp of agreeing a new deal with the Stamford Bridge club, which would give Hazard £41.6m over the course of the contract.
That deal would run until the end of the 2019 season.
However, Spanish giants Real are hoping to scupper those plans.
They are hopeful of funding a big money move for the Chelsea star through selling former Tottenham Hotspurs man Gareth Bale to Manchester United for around £90 million.
Hazard would be an ideal replacement for Bale, who Man Utd have been chasing for an extended period of time.
Hazard has also been a long term target for the Champions League winners.
Real manager Carlo Ancelotti, who previously managed the Blues, leading them to a Premier League and FA Cup double, is thought to be a big fan of Hazard.
This could push through any planned raid of his former side, according to the Daily Star.
